Paul Goldschmidt, one of the top first basemen in all of baseball, was just traded.

The St. Louis Cardinals acquired six-time All-star first baseman Goldschmidt from Arizona in exchange for starting right-hand pitcher Luke Weaver, catcher Carson Kelly, minor league infielder Andy Young and a 2019 draft pick. His resume includes six All-Star Games, three Gold Gloves and four Silver Slugger awards.

Goldschmidt is entering the final season of club control and will earn $14.5 million next year.

Goldschmidt hit.290 with 33 home runs last season for the Diamondbacks.

Goldschmidt, 31, was drafted by the Diamondbacks in 2009 and was promoted to the majors in 2011.

Former MLB Players Luis Valbuena and Jose Castillo Die in Car Crash
Former Cubs infielder Luis Valbuena was killed in an auto accident Thursday night in his native Venezuela. Valbuena was now a free agent, but he spent his last two seasons with the Los Angeles Angels .

He has compiled a career.297 batting average, 209 home runs, and 710 RBI.

Cardinals beat reporter Jenifer Langosch reported that the team will now look to improve their bullpen and add a left-handed bench player instead of targeting free agent outfielder Bryce Harper. And there was obvious concern about the D-backs' ability to sign him beyond this season.

Weaver, a 25-year-old right-hander, was 7-11 with a 4.95 ERA last season.

Hazen said it's premature to say Arizona is in a full-scale rebuilding mode, noting the team still has plenty of talented players.
